- Godspeed You Black Emperor!
5. The Sad Mafioso
Recorded near the back of the venue (near the outside bar), so there's some unfortunate chatter during quiet moments. Setlist is the same as 10/1/12, so the track breaks are copied from that (being slightly unfamiliar with the material). Hope Drone is likely missing a few minutes at the beginning (faded in).

Thank you for recording and uploading this. Watching God's Pee perform at Austin's Mohawk has been an absolute treat.
Added comment: Hope Drone is always an entirely improvised piece.
Subject: Fantastic recording that brings out new details in some of these pieces
This recording also seems to bring out new details in "Hope Drone", which (as far as I know) the group have been performing since their reunion two years ago. I honestly haven't listened to many performances from the past year or so, but this version is much more intricate than it was in the 2010 and early 2011 performances, and these details weren't evident in the October 1 performance.
Performance-wise, the band are in solid form, delivering versions of these songs that rival their album versions (where available). A critical document of Godspeed, with sound quality that is almost unbelievable for an audience recording. If you consider yourself anything more than the most casual fan of this group, you probably need this.
